I have both books, Leonard and Sakuma, in front of me right now. Here's a couple of facts, so that one could decide on their own (no opinions).

Sakuma has 48 chords per 11 x 8 inch page, and 20 pages of chords. Leonard has 11 chords per 9 x 5 page and 83 pages of chords.

Sakuma has sections, such as Major Chords, Minor Chords, 6ths, 7ths, Dominant, Augmented, etc. on different pages. Leonard has all the chords of a character (e/g all G chords) together (for instance, all G type chords go from page 59-65).

The chord diagrams in Sakuma are 1 inch each. The chord diagrams in Leonard are 1.5 inches each.

Back to opinion: I cannot stand two things about Leonard--the incessant page flipping to find a chord, and the poor organization of the book.

For instance, if I'm learning a song, and it's chords are A, Cm, G, F, and I want to see if fingering up the fretboard will make it more pleasant, or easier transitions, in Sakuma I only need to look at one single page for all the major chords A, G, and F and all their alternatives-- then I look at one other page for Cm (just looking on the single Minor page for all Minors, not just the one i need).

With Leonard, not only do I have to skip around the book to four completely different sections for the four chords, but then I have to wade through 4-8 pages for each chord to find what I'm looking for. It'll drive a person insane!

A+ Roy, thanks for making us this book!

The "Treasury of Ukulele Chords" is a wonderful book for anyone who plays or wants to play a ukulele. The chords are easy to find and are displayed in a useful and clear fashion. Each page lists chords with various positions making it easy to find the fingering that suits you and your abilities best. A true treasure book.

If you're learning the ukulele, this is an excellent reference book. It lists all possible ways to finger all the chords. Note: this is NOT an instructional manual for learning to play, just a reference for the chords.

Great for fiddling around on the uke', very comprehensive. Please note that the book is aptly named; it truly is a book of pages of chords, nothing more and nothing less.

This book has multiple chord shapes for every type of chord I could ever think of. There are apps out there that can do much of the same thing, but if you want a physical copy I wouldn't get any other chord book.

As you grow as a player, or when you want to start learning about chords not covered in this book (the sort of chords that don't exist except in the very jazziest of jazz songs), this is what I recommend. Start learning music theory, understand the principles of movable chords, and how chords are formed. Until then, and even a while afterwords, this book is a fantastic reference.

That's all it is. Just chords. No instructions. Nothing but chord charts...well there are two songs in the back but they are merely used to illustrate the use of substitute chords.

The book to go to for all the chords of the uke... Anyone who wants to go farther than the first four frets of the uke. this is the book.. I found myself wanting to play those beautiful sounds that can only be found beyond the first four frets. The author does show some chords ,that I think needs folks with fingers way longer than normal...So some are not useful for me... I would recommend it for all serious uke players...

It's handy to have all the Uke chords in one place, and arranged this way, by type of chord. It's just a reference book, but a good one.
I just added a star to my review since everyone else is giving it five stars, why should I be different? It IS a very useful book.
